Or maybe 5 months of the same routine and lifts and rep range has his body adapted and thus the plateue (how do you spell that?)
recent reserch suggests our bodies are amazing adaptation machines and after only 12 weeks will learn how to adapt to the stress from a routine and stop growing.
You need to mix up the exercises or rep / set ranges to shock the body into new growth, apparently unless of course you are naturally gifted or assisted.
And shouldn’t he have had a light / deload week after 3 months of consistant good training? That’s one idea I’ve read. Makes your whole body fully recovered and you go back in the gym stronger.
I’m as interested in replies to this post for myself as I am for the OP.
This also just simply isn’t true. If so, powerlifters would never get stronger since they primarily bench, squat, and deadlift for years on end.[/quote]
You are either selectively quoting to troll or have reading comprehension problems.
I’ll assume the later out of kindness.
I never said they wouldn’t get stronger, just that the body stops the hypertrophic process due to adaptation. I was saying it stops extra msucle from growing, which in itself is actually a defense mechanism to threat (repeated strain.)
Shit google it, it’s basic elementary stuff anyone lifitng for a month and reading around a bit should know.
We’ve all seen powerlifters that make huge lifts that look skinny and like it’s impossible for them to do so as well as seeing the ones that were born with big thick physiquesin the first place.
The stench of myopia and mythical truths around here is killing me, I’m off to bed.[/quote]
I quoted your entire post. I read your entire post. I have no reading comprehension problems.
The body does not stop hypertrophy because you stay on the same program. This is common sense.
Hypertophy is the reaction to the stress, not stopping hypertrophy. That is completely backwards.
I’ve told you this before, but you really should just go lift and stop pretending like you know anything, because you sure as hell don’t.
